The Fire service has advised the Union of the intention to offer this survey for middle and senior managers – it will also be offered to Station Officers and Senior Station Officers on a voluntary basis.

The Union has sought further clarification regarding the survey from the Fire Service (including a copy of the Survey Form), but has received no response.

As well, even before the formal letter from Mike Hall had been received, the Fire Service had released its intention to carry out the survey – hardly genuine consultation or acting in good faith.

A 360 degree feedback survey (particularly on Station Officers and Senior Station Officers) necessitates the participation of others who have not indicated a willingness to participate – i.e. a 360 degree feedback survey on a Station Officer necessitates the participation of the entire crew.

The decision is both expensive (involving an external consulting firm) and is both a potential precursor for performance assessments and a job retention/creation scheme for more H.R. personnel at National H.Q.

Consequently, the Union recommends to all members not to participate in this Survey.
